The History 2.0 Classroom: iPad Hieroglyphics

The History 2.0 Classroom: iPad Hieroglyphics | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Over the past few years I have facilitated a number of iPad workshops with teachers from across the country.  One observation that I have made is that when anyone (not just teachers) are new to iPads (or any device), they have a difficult time deciphering the meaning of the icons that appear consistently throughout apps.

The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device

The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
The challenge for educators, especially directors of educational technology, is not to limit how our teachers teach, but to focus on the foundational skills and provide a clear and concrete formula for how different technological devices and applications will enhance these skills in order to give a learner the ability to create a product that will change the world.

Digital technologies should not be invisible. In their usage, we need to make them visible and unobtrusive. Their visibility helps us understand our relationships and choices.

An iPad can be a teacher’s very handy assistant! Last year I published an infographic titled "iPad as the Teacher’s Pet” and I have updated it to version 2.0. It’s all about what can be done by Pad-using educators, whether or not their students have iPads. It is divided into seven sections:

I was asked by a colleague in another school the other day if I could give her a snapshot into what I actually do, and what the role of an ICT Integrator actually looks like (from my perspective anyway). Apparently she wants to talk to her school leaders about having an integrator on their staff …

Allie Peck's curator insight, April 4, 3:14 PM

This is a great resource as it stresses that the importance of technology integration is for the benefit of the kids not for the sake of using technology.  This is the first source I've found that discusses the importance of how technology is integrated, not whether it is good or bad to integrate it.  I think it is an interesting and different take from what I had previously been looking at and will likely look more into this aspect of technology in the classroom.
